Journey time from Mallaig to Lochaline is at least 90 minutes; rather more from Mallaig to Kilchoan.
Once on Mull
As you come off the ferry at either Craignure or Fishnish, turn right towards Tobermory. After about ten miles you pass through the village of Salen and the road becomes single track. Follow the coastline for another mile, then just before the bridge, take the left fork, sign-posted Dervaig. Drive for another nine miles and Druimnacroish is on your left, two miles short of the village itself.
Or, leaving Tobermory, take the Dervaig road (sign-posted). After eight steep and winding miles, as you come down the hill into Dervaig, keep on the main road, bearing left around the white painted village pub ("The Bellachroy"). Just after the church (on your left) and before the bridge, turn left (sign-posted Salen & Craignure). Druimnacroish is almost two miles along this road, on your right.
Following these routes, Druimnacroish is around 30-40 minutes from Craignure, 25-35 minutes from Fishnish and 20-30 minutes from Tobermory.
